We have demonstrated that human periodontal ligament cells not only produce collagen but also may act as immune cells. Thus, not only white blood cells but also tissue-cells contibute to cytokine production in periodontal inflammation. This project aims to elucidate the mechanisms explaining the phenotype-shift and identify pathways regulating the functional properties of periodontal ligament cells.
